Weekend Reads

In our never ending quest to simplify, it's good to remember that we are Blessed By Clutter. I don't know about you, but this week has been a rough one for me. I believe I even said the words, "I'm not sure how much more of this I can take," to my long suffering husband. "This" being illness, what seems like a perpetually messy house, chronic lack of energy, needy (oh so needy) children, homeschooling, etc. etc. etc.

Yeah, some perspective (like the Blessed by Clutter post) or this post about The Dilemma Every Mother Faces goes a long way to re-setting my attitude. And a good night's sleep helps too.

If I can squeeze in some more sewing someday (it's not on the agenda these days!), these Skirt Shirts look pretty simple. And we've got lots of t-shirts to choose from around here. I suppose I need to learn to sew with elastic thread first.

Before I get to any sewing though, I think I need one of these White Chocolate Mochas. OK, I don't need it, but it sure sounds yummy.

Sorry I wasn't "there for you." It isn't good when both our households are at a low ebb. There should be at least one adult female to help keep things moving smoothly. There certainly wasn't one here and sounds like your week was much the same. I have high hopes for next week, tho'!
